About the Trail

The family-friendly Bayswater Foreshore Walking Trail begins at Riverside Gardens, and walkers are then taken on a loop trail where they will visit Enviro House, Halliday House, Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary and nearby Wetlands, an infamous Olive Tree, Gobba Lake, ANA Rowing Club, Garratt Road Bridge, Baigup Wetlands, and Ellis House. Along the way people will also learn about Bayswater’s Indigenous history and culture, War history, early European history, and the native flora and fauna which call this place home.

There is a playground, toilets and barbeque facilities at Riverside Gardens, and also at various locations along the trail. People are encouraged to download the ‘Bayswater Foreshore Play Trail’ of the Nature Play WA ‘Play Trails’ App to get a more interactive experience and complete fun challenges along the way. The City of Bayswater’s website contains further content and links, and a Treasure Hunt document for use in the trail.(See links section)
